LAD OF LEISURE ( Meissen Pug Dog ): You pug owners and pug lovers will quickly recognize the pose. I love the fact that we can see our chosen breed in Meissen molds made in the 18th & 19th Centuries. I canít prove it, but the original mold of this pug may have been made by Meissenís greatest porcelain artist Johann Joachim Kaendler - in the 18th Century. He was known for putting his pugs in more active poses. Though you couldnít call this lounge lizard very active, he is in a more interesting pose than the usual standing or seated stationary ones. Meissen pugs are made of the finest hard paste porcelain and are the top of the line. The molding is flawless and they are decorated by Meissenís talented porcelain artists. My photos canít really capture the details in the molding and decoration. He is a feint fawn color. This pug carries the famous Meissen crossed swords hallmark on its base, along with the model number "78684", the molder mark "35AH" and a black painted "550" indicating the artist. Condition: Excellent. Size: 3" long, 1 1/2" high, 1 1/4Ē deep.
